Redesigning The Boarding Pass

Tyler Thompson has come up with these great alternatives to boring and generally confusing boarding passes. You should check out this blog to submit your own redesign of the boarding pass. Fun idea, too bad boarding passes are printed with thermal printers and can only generate black or 1 other color.

I hope these redesigns were sent to Delta. I think they're fantastic and oh-so-easy to understand.

poster girl | Jasper Goodall

Poster illustration/photography series entitled Poster Girl by British illustrator Jasper Goodall. 

In february 2009 Goodalls first London based solo Gallery show titled ‘Poster Girls’ marked a new direction in his work, mixing photography with illustration in a stunning concoction of shiny latex, dripping pink goo and acrylic cut out body masking that comments on fetishism, dressing up and the fine line between fantasy and reality.

He has quite an interesting interview with icon magazine where he reveals a lot about himself and his dark past. You can read that here. If you're familiar with Muse (the band), then you might be interested in knowing that he's the artist behind this.

This is what I call cmykinky.
